Publisher's Summary

Nehemiah, the young son of a Jewish woman, a weaver from Jerusalem, is born and raised among the Jews who didn't return to Jerusalem from the Exile. Educated by Rabbi Kagba, one of the magi present at Jesus' birth thirty years earlier, Nehemiah grows up with the expectation of a soon-coming Messiah. Could the Yeshua of Nazareth, who is walking the earth, reportedly doing miracles, be that Messiah?

When young Nehemiah must travel the long caravan road to Jerusalem, he is charged with an unusual mission - to carry a mysterious object back to the holy city of Jerusalem...an object whose reappearance heralds the Messiah's arrival.

Nehemiah arrives in Jerusalem just as the final events of Jesus' earthly ministry are coming to a climax: The Feast of Dedication, the Triumphal Entry, the last cleansing of the Temple, and culminating at the Last Supper in the Upper Room. Only Nehemiah understands the true sacrifice that is to come as he makes the cup worthy of his Savior.

Nehemiah

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. An eye-opener and another level of knowledge of Jesus' mission; another level of knowledge of those who loved and served him, and another level of the activities of the times. It's a great book!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nehemiah. Because the Lord was with him his entire life.

Have you listened to any of Tom O'Malley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I've not, but I enjoyed his soothing voice.

If you could rename Take This Cup, what would you call it?

Nehemiah.

LOVE this book!

What made the experience of listening to Take This Cup the most enjoyable?

The reader of the book brought the story to life. Brock & Brodie Thoene have written an excellent story. They truly bring to life what it might have been like to be in Jerusalem during Jesus's time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it made me laugh and cry. But hearing of Jesus's final days. The writers and reader made it seem like I was there. Knowing what was to come for Jesus.. I was overwhelmed.

Any additional comments?

Get this book!! You won't be disapointed!!

Sleepy

The story itself is very good, a fictional account of a very real event that has great meaning to me as a Christian. The narrator just sounds so bored as he reads that I had a hard time engaging.

a great book for younger readers

I wanted to love this book. I reader was to slow, I was able to speed him up to 1.20 without any distortion, that did help. I felt it dragged in a few places of the story. I learned a few things and it did help open my thoughts to the things I have read in the Bible. I know children would enjoy listening and I would recommend to any younger person this book.

good story, but not well read

I love these authors but because of the monotone readying and voice that didn't seem to match the characters I didn't get caught up in the story as much
